I have been unable to install/uninstall some programmes for many weeks now due to a problem with the Windows Installer Service on my Vista 32 bit o/s. When I attempt to install the AVG
Anti Virus programme I receive a message stating that Windows Installer has been incorrectly installed. Having spent some time investigating this same problem that others appear to be having and trying many many remedies without success, I have discovered from
a contributor to
http://answers.microsoft.com that they resolved the same problem that I am experiencing by uninstalling System Mechanics and that this utility is not recommended by Microsoft.Since I have just renewed my subscription to SM having been using it for
a number of years, I am reluctant to discontinue using it without the reasonable possiblity that it may indeed be the cause of my difficulty.I hope that someone may give me a little guidance on this matter.
